The name prevails itself from Migos’ two chart-topping album releases, 2017’s Culture and this year’s following Culture II, whilst Kiari is Offset’s birth name. Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres in April, Cardi explained Offset came up with the baby’s name: “My dude [Offset] named the baby. I really like the name. I’ma let him say the name since he named the baby. It’s like, almost tricky, but when it comes out, it’s like, ‘Ah!’”

Cardi kept her pregnancy a secret until revealing her impending birth during a performance on SNL earlier in April. She continued to promote her debut album Invasion of Privacy whilst pregnant.

The artist opened up in an interview with Rolling Stone about motherhood, professing: “I don’t want to miss one second. I don’t want to miss no smiles, I don’t want to miss no new movement, I don’t want the baby to confuse me and the babysitter.”

This is the first child for Cardi B and the fourth for Offset, who has three children from previous relationships. The couple secretly wed in September and are planning a wedding ceremony later this year.

Will Smith Regrets Mega Blockbuster Movies

Will Smith

His name has always drawn to be a major attraction at the box office of any movie to certify hundreds of millions of dollars for production companies. Will Smith is the only actor till today, to have 10 consecutive films grossing over $150 million internationally.

But it appears, the former Fresh Prince of Bel Air star says it isn’t about meaningless blockbusters anymore but rather the art of it all. Will shared his stance on the new outlook with E! News whilst in Cannes:

“I had so much success that I started to taste global blood and my focus shifted from my artistry to winning. I wanted to win and be the biggest movie star, and what happened was there was a lag—around Wild Wild West time—I found myself promoting something because I wanted to win versus promoting something because I believed in it.”

He continued, “That smoke and mirrors in marketing is over. People are going to know really quickly and globally whether a product keeps its promises. Back in the ’80s and ’90s you had a piece of crap movie you put a trailer with a lot of explosions and it was Wednesday before people knew your movie was s–t…But now what happens is 10 minutes into the movie, people are tweeting, ‘This is s–t. Go see Vin Diesel.’”

He added, “My career has been strictly being able to sell my products globally, and it’s now in the hand of fans. I have to be in tune with their needs and not trick them into going to see Wild Wild West.”

He joked, “It’s funny to go sit in a meeting in Hollywood now. It’s a new idea that we have to make good movies. ‘Hmm, I never thought of that.’”

Well, its always good to see an actor appreciate that art needs to be perfected with passion rather than hitting the statistics of the box office!

 

 

Bobbi Kristina’s Aunt Pens Letter About Niece’s Death

  
It’s been a year since Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unconscious in the bathtub of her townhouse in Atlanta, GA. while many of her family, friends and fans have said goodbye, other’s are questioning the cause of Bobbi Kristina’s death. But, Leolah Brown, Bobbi Kristina’s aunt, vowed to reveal the truth in a forthcoming memoir in an open letter she penned on Facebook as she stated that she knows what happened to her niece. 

Bobbi Kristina, was found face down in her bathtub within days of her mother’s three – year anniversary of her passing. The coroner’s report ruled her death an accidental drowning, citing heart disease and cocaine use as probable factors.

Following continued, intensive care, Bobbi Kristina never regained consciousness and passed on July 26. The cause of her death as well as the involvement of long – time boyfriend Nick Gordon’s part in the matter. 

The penned letter Leolah thanked family and fans for their continued support. Labelling Bobbi Kristina’s death as a murder, she stated the book will answer all the questions raised since the investigation started, saying it, “Will tell it all. The whole truth.”

“With all that has happened, I am sure everyone has questions and concerns regarding Whitney and Bobbi Kriss’s death and murder. AND I DON’T BLAME YOU. If it be the “WILL” of The Almighty God, MY BOOK WILL ANSWER “every” single question that has come up in your minds concerning what REALLY happened and took place with my sister and niece.”

Leolah isn’t the only one to know the actual cause of Bobbi Kristina’s death. Authorities reportedly know the cause of death, but have withheld the release of the information dram the public. 

New evidence has surfaced concerning a woman who impersonated a nurse at the hospice Bobbi Kristina died. The woman had been arrested and charged with multiple counts of fraud. However, since the pending investigation, Gordon was hit with a $40 million wrongful death suit by Bobbi Kristina’s estate, claiming he served her a lethal cocktail and put her face down in the bathtub.

It is unclear whether Leolah is referring to this evidence, or had findings of her own. Her letter does not include the release date of her memoir but assures to tell the story from beginning to end. Read Leolah’s Facebook post below:

“Hi FB Fam!

Peace be unto you all. I pray that each and every one of you are in excellent health and spirits today! 

I am here today to THANK YOU ALL once again for your continued support of me fighting for my sister Whitney & niece Bobbi Kristina. I know that Whitney and Krissi would also thank you ALL if they were here! Therefore, on their behalf, I sincerely appreciate, admire and respect you all for all of your continued support and kind words! 

Furthermore, I would humbly ask, when you hear something in the media that is negative about me, do not be fooled and take it as the one and only gospel and immediately think it is true, while making the mistake of judging me wrongfully. For it is no secret nor unusual that they are going to “try” to make me look as bad as they possibly can, simply because they indeed know that the truth is with me. 

I Thank God Almighty that I have the peace He gave to me. Which is, never worrying or allowing their evil doings to prevent me from sleeping well every night. Indeed, that is something that is difficult to do when a person knows that they are not speaking truth. However, that is not what is going on with Leolah. 

I am and will always be at peace with whatever I say out of my mouth, simply because I know that I will never speak anything other than the truth…inspite of their schemes and conspiracy to cover it up. The only ones who are ill effected are the ones who are guilty regardless of how it may seem, look or appear to anyone. Yes, always listen, yet keep quiet and remain humble when it comes to me because everyone is in for a great surprise! This Book will tell it all! The whole truth and nothing but (so help me God)!

With all that has happened, I am sure everyone has questions and concerns regarding Whitney and Bobbi Kriss’s death and murder. AND I DON’T BLAME YOU. If it be the “WILL” of The Almighty God, MY BOOK WILL ANSWER “every” single question that has come up in your minds concerning what REALLY happened and took place with my sister and niece. All of the why’s and the why not’s will also be answered as well. From the very beginning to the very end. I promise you will have it asap (if it is the will of God)! And after you read it, you will have to ask no more!

Please be patient and look forward to “ALL THE TRUTH” coming from Leolah’s mouth..

Thank you guys so very much for being such kind & great supportive and wise human beings. YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST! 

Sincerely,

Leolah”

Roc Nation Launches $2.3 Million Counter Suit Against Rita Ora

 
After signing a five album contract with Roc Nation in 2008 Rita Ora filed a lawsuit against the label in December 2015, citing to have been ‘orphaned’ due to the label’s other huskiness endeavours. 

Jay Z called the singer – songwriter after the lawsuit was filed and agreed to relieve Ora from her contract. However, the rapper turned businessman filed a counter suit of $2.3 million, which according to Roc Nation, was invested in marketing her sophomore album. 

“Roc Nation’s market and recording costs, to date, for Ms. Ora’s still incomplete second album are not less than $2, 353, 500,” the lawsuit states.

The complaint, which was filed in a L.A. Superior Court, states: “When Rita signed, Roc Nation and its senior executives were very involved with her as an interest. 

“As Roc Nation’s interests diversified, there were fewer resources available, and the company suffered a revolving door of executives. Rita’s remaining supporters at the label left or moved on to other activities, to the point where she no longer had a relationship with anyone at the company.” 

Ora’s lawyer, Howard King, told The New York Daily News, he hopes to reach a settlement prior to the April 19 hearing deadline.

Taking to Daily News Monday, King said, “I think we’re just going to resolved  this. He said he’s happy to let her go. He called her the day after he filed and graciously said she didn’t need to file.

“I’m paraphrasing, but he said, ‘if you want off the label, we’ll let you go.'”

The lawyer also claims to believe Roc Nation’s new counter – lawsuit was filed ‘reluctantly’.

Katrina Kaif Dismisses Rumours About Her Red Hair Costing Rs 55 Lakh For Fitoor

  
Katrina Kaif has dismissed reports that it cost Rs. 55 Lakh to colour her hair red for her forthcoming film, Fitoor. She stated, “it’s not even possible.” 

Talking to IANS in a telephone interview from Mumbai, the actress clarified, “I don’t even think that’s possible, even if you want to… It is all a kind of slightly sensationalised piece of news that comes out and gets highlighted, which more often than not turns out to be baseless.”

Regarding the style of her hair colour in the film, Kaif said it was the director Abhishek Kapoor’s idea, “This was an idea which Abhishek had. The thought behind it was when the leaves fall in Kashmir and the whole ground turns red… It was a symbolic connection as the colour red signifies passion, love and fire.”

Kaif who recently launched L’Oreal Paris’ new La Vie En Rose signature collection, also added, “We took a lot of pictures and a lot of discussion and once we had locked in on the hair colour, and then just took one day to do it and shot the whole film in three to four months. Then I dyed the colour back, and it was black again.”

Kaif also issued a statement denying the fabricated stories around her ‘multi – million hair colour’ which according to some media outlets, pointed out the money could have been used to fund education. 

“The wonderful thing about being an actor is that people are interested in what you do. But there are also lots of misleading and untrue articles that also come out. And because I am not on any social media platform yet, I don’t have the chance to contradict every rumour.

“The team who worked on my hair, did a great job. It was a great idea put forward by Abhishek. As kind and wonderful that our producers are, I don’t think they are that kind. I don’t think I would have been very nervous had Abhishek not been very confident in supporting me.”

Filmmaker Kapoor has also runniahed aside the rumours. 

In a statement of his own, Kapoor said, ”

“I can’t help but smile when I read these speculative reports of money spent on Katrina’s hair. They are outrageous. But what’s important is Katrina and Tabu (who also sports red hair) both look amazing and in my humble opinion, their hair even more so. So let’s just compliment the ladies.” 

Fitoor is an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic novel, Great Expectations. Kaif will play Firdaus while Adaitya Roy Kaput will portray the character of Noor.

The film also casts Aditi Rao Hydari, Lara Dutta and Rahul Bhatt. Fitoor will hit the theatres on February 12.
